Statutory Options for School District Mergers: Report addressing House Resolution 30, 2011 - In reviewing Tennessee laws related to school district consolidations, two paths emerge: elimination of special school districts, with the resulting transfer of students to the local county district, and consolidation of all districts within a county into a unified county school district, using a planning commission. This report highlights the inconsistencies and conflicts resulting from these two separate paths for school district governance changes. The report also addresses potential issues raised by a new legislative provision allowing counties meeting certain criteria to establish new municipal or special districts.
